PENTAX IST DS PROBLEM WITH INTERNAL FLASH


\015 Okay, I hope someone can help. My Pentax ist ds has stopped working with it's internal flash. It works in P mode without a flash but the colors in the pictures look very orange/red and most of the shots are very blurry/double exposed looking. I may have hit the wrong setting. It was shooting fine yesterday in the p setting.\015\012One more problem is I cannot figure out the self timer. I hit the fn button and enter the 12sec timer but it does not fire a shot????\015

Answers :

First make sure the camera is not set to No Flash on the shooting mode dial.Also, in P, Tv, Av or M modes the flash reverts to manual and must be raised manually by pressing the button next to the viewfinder.

Pentax K110d flash trigger problem, I have 2 flash trigger strobes set up and a flash on the hot shoe of the camera, but with shutter release the trigger strobe lights fire but do not show in the pic, only the hot shoe flash is reaching the sensor. but if I slow down shutter to 0.5 sec the strobes show up.?

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.
